writing but when use the right one at the right time you have great power. but to send to must be based on facts not some type of the motion but it is a place where you can get the extra 12 punch. it is not the right word so it must be based on facts, not vague he motions, that is not quite right, nastia motion that will plug in a word and come back and get the right one at the right time. so i do not state to continue to get attacked. dissent must be based on facts but not right now let's say sloppy motions and that comes pretty close because under the extreme right hand or left much of what passes for dissent is sloppy, emotional and critical reaction i do not like those guys on the other side there four blah, blah, blah. i always take everything right to seriously and make it the best that i can but with nonfiction, it is somewhat formulaic even the sa takes longer you just respect the audience and state your case as clearly as possible. what i am writing right now, one of my heroes i invested in a wonderful reproduction of a huge two volume dictionary by his own definition during th

:00 in the afternoon. that is still pretty long by writing standards but it's not what i used to be able to do. >> for all these different sources because in the files there would be fbi documents, the documents from the king library, documents from the presidential libraries, documents from a host of specialized libraries like the peace collection that is at the library on the imam era, those would be intermingled in the files, and the only way that i could correlate them with things that were and books or tapes or that sort of thing is i had a note card system on the computer. >> this is microsoft access which has it on there. there are several files i use for the book. giglio is the bibliography, which basically keeps track of the books that were used. i have a coded system to keep track of them. you will see the code is over here. so book number one, which i entered back in the early 80's was white over black, jordan's kind of history of race in america. and so this code goes all the way down to i guess the last book i entered was booked number 1,088, our times, the illustrated history of

the extra one to punch. i would use the word but it's not the right post so dissent must be based on facts, not the key motions. that isn't quite right. messy emotions? i might q1 in and come back so it doesn't hold me back. dissent must be based on fact, not, for now let's put in sloppy and oceans and that comes in close because i think on the extreme right and left much of it passes for dissent as sloppy, emotional, and critic reactions. i don't like those guys on the other side there for blah, blah i always take everything i write and make it the serious i can. nonetheless with nonfiction it is somewhat more formulaic. even an essay takes longer to be a full article. maybe there is research but it's not hard riding. you just respect the audience and state your place case as clearly as possible. what i am writing right now is actively saying something nasty about one of my heroes. i invested in a wonderful reproduction, huge to volume dictionary i go to all the time because i just love to read it. but he said patriotism's last refuge is a scoundrel and by his definition old sam must have
